The fall of Atlas Alliance has been news for a couple weeks now. The surrender, and the somewhat strange surrender agreement (here: http://www.evenews24.com/2010/08/30/atlas-leader%c2%b4s-evemail-to-uaxdeath/) as well as the recorded logs of a leadership conversation (here: http://www.evenews24.com/2010/09/01/bobby-atlas-rage-about-the-surrender-deal/) have certainly made it a very popular topic. Add to it some leaks from the Atlas forums (here: http://www.evenews24.com/2010/09/02/atlas-forums-look-leadership-sold-us-out/ and here: http://www.evenews24.com/2010/09/04/atlas-deal-is-off-chatlogsopinions/) and you have a makings of a scandal.
But how deep does the rabbit hole go? That is something that Mord Fiddle decided to analyze, and it is definately worth the read: http://fiddlersedge.blogspot.com/2010/09/carebears-who-killed-atlas.html
